Spacey Syd Barrett. Another 'Dark Side' illustration for the great XL magazine here in Italia.
These continue to be more and more fun. The best part about doing illustrations of a real person is that it keeps you working with a set group of 'rules'. You know when you're getting away from who and what that specific person is/was. I like boundaries in art. I also think that it's important to try and capture the essence of the person more than a dead-on likeness. Next one up is Bowie during the Berlin years. Shakin' in my boots already....

This is the last of my Winter Soldier covers and probably the last non Rorschach job comic-wise for a while. Hoping to come back to covers with a fresh approach when the book is finished. Feeling the need to shake things up a bit, both technique wise and conceptually.

Rorschach's journal: January 2nd, 2012
Streets are covered in snow, as if it could somehow hide the filth underneath. Saw homeless man frozen to death on subway grate on the corner of 42nd and 9th. Icicles coming out of frozen nostrils and burst blood vessels in open eyeballs. Winter only quiets sound of malcontent, perversion, and sickness. Spring is coming soon enough, when the junkies, prostitutes, and parasites will thaw and their disgusting, rancid flowers will bloom. Summer. Summer is worse. In the end, content that winter keeps most horrid truths indoors. At least inside, arms and fingers break behind closed doors...
DC's announcement of BEFORE WATCHMEN

So, some of my very first submissions featured this big Gorilla terrorizing the streets of New York. I had shown them to Scott Dunbier, working at Wildstorm at the time, and he was good enough to take them in to the offices and show them around. When Jim finally saw the pages, he apparently said, 'Well, if we ever need a gorilla artist...'.
This cover is clearly a nod to one of my favorite artists: Phil Hale. If you're not familiar with his work, I recommend checking his stuff out immediately. His influence changed the way I thought about art in every sense. He was also my gateway drug to start experimenting with paint and color.... the guy is a genius.

The cover for the first book sans credits. Beyond excited to be doing the covers for this series. It's always fun to do a character that's a bit left of center, and Lisbeth certainly fits that bill. Plus it was a nice challenge to try and visualize her differently than she's been interpreted on film. Looking forward to giving her various looks as the series progresses. You know you're enjoying a gig when you do a ton of sketches, not because you have to but because the ideas just keep coming...
